Castrol Super Clean works wonders as well. And without the fumes!

Yes, I remember that. There was an article in a sci-fi magazine showing the first screenshots from FC(which were really minature) and they mentioned something about the next film having a character called B9 and Romulans.

YES!! Woo, someone else remembers it! Hmmm so if it was a physical article - I may have it in my stash of magazines.

How sad - most teenages would have had a stash of pr0n mags, I had Starburst and Starlog lol.

I've been using brake fluid with good results, scrubbing the paint with an old toothbrush after soaking the models for some hours in the fluid. The E-nil's paint came off pretty well, like peeling an orange. The E-A was a bit more problematic, as I discovered there was a second coat underneath and thus the paint didn't come out as easily (nothing some scrubbing couldn't solve). But the E-D... oh God... I found out that one had not two, but three consecutive layers of paint! What was I thinking? That one's been the most difficult to clean, even after a lot of thorough scrubbing there are still some rests attached to the plastic - I think I'll use a cloth soaked in thinner to finish cleaning it.

I'll try the castrol stuff.
I like the easy Off because I once forgot all about the Ambassador model I had soaking in it for a couple of weeks (I went on vacation) and when I got back the model was all crusty with dried oven cleaner.
I just washed it and the paint came off but the model was fine.

Made me very happy (them Ambys are tough to get).

Machf, do you have a a laser printer? SSM has free downloadable decals for the first Enterprise set (with all the windows for the Galaxy!) and several places online sell printable waterslide decals for printers.
Cheaper by far than buying all the sets.
I can even send you the Illustrator template I made for registries and the scans I have of the transporter emitters and hatches and such.

The advantage to CSC is that it isn't as volatile as oven cleaner and it doesn't do anything nasty to the plastic if you forget about it for a while... Brake fluid tends to start eating away at the plastic if left alone for a while.

Yes, I think I saw those on SSM... I don't own a color laser printer, but I have access to one. I suppose printing a single sheet of paper or two wouldn't be much of a problem if I ask...

Hmmm....PM me with your E-Addy and I'll send you some good files: I have a scan of an incredible Nebula sheet with more markings and better lifeboats than the SSM Galaxy version.
You'll still need the SSM version for the windows though.

Will do....hmmm.....I just got some new waterslide decal film: mabye I'll just print you a nice galaxy sheet (assuming this stuff works out) instead of sending the bulky files..

Hey look - they're auctioning off the gold models from First Contact.

Despite the item description, I'd bet real money these are gold painted plastic and not diecast metal.

Well....they re-did the display for Insurrection/Nemesis, and these are listed as the First Contact models.

Considering it also said they were from the "captain's quarters" and not the observation lounge, I'd also tend to question some of the other details provided. Such as whether these are actually the models used on set in the movie, or simply the same models as the ones they used in the movie that someone is trying to be clever with.

Gee, that auction page gives a pretty poor description of something they're hoping to sell for a few thousand dollars. How big are the damned things?
